After hitting up film festivals in Venice & Toronto to screen her upcoming party flick “Spring Breakers,” Vanessa Hudgens is finally back home in Los Angeles running through her usual routine of hitting the gym, smiling for the papz, grabbing coffee, hitting lunch/dinner with her latest boy-toy, & going shopping (the last three are coming up).

Aside from “Spring Breakers,” Vanessa also has two films hitting theaters before the end of the year. The first, “Gimme Shelter,” is an indy flick written & directed by Ron Krauss and stars Brendan Fraser, Rosario Dawson & James Earl Jones. The film will hit theaters (probably limited release) on November 8. As one of the main character, Vanessa takes up the role of a pregnant teenager who runs away from her abusive mother (Rosario Dawson) and traces her real father (Brendan Fraser). Don’t know about you drones, but This sounds like a film that should be screening at film festivals as opposed to “Spring Breakers,” but we won’t complain too much. Anyway, here’s some plot action:

16 year old street-wise Apple (Vanessa Hudgens) has never had an easy life. Her mother, June Bailey (Rosario Dawson), is an addict and prostitute, is verbally and physically abusive, and is grooming her daughter to follow in her footsteps. Apple knows the streets, alleys and motels like the back of her hand but wants more from her life. She possesses a tenacious, tough, indomitable spirit, and will not surrender to fate. Apple runs away from her mother and tracks down her father whom she has never known, as he was only 19 when he got Apple’s mother pregnant. Apple begs her now Wall Street Broker father, Tom Fitzpatrick (Brendan Fraser), to take her in. In the few days under her father’s care, she learns she’s become pregnant by a kid from the streets she met on the train, who now wants nothing to do with her. She is forced to leave her father’s home because of her choice to give birth to the baby she is carrying.

Apple runs away again, and is eventually taken under the wing of Father McCarthy (James Earl Jones), the chaplain of the local hospital after almost getting herself killed. He offers to let Apple live at a shelter for pregnant young women run by a spiritual woman named Kathy (Ann Dowd). It is here that Apple begins to tentatively interact with the other girls who are in the same predicament as she and gradually begins to make a family for herself. Source

Here’s Vanessa in character from “Gimme Shelter”:

The other film is “The Frozen Ground,” which is produced by none other than rapper 50 Cent & stars Nicolas Cage, so we all kind of know the box-office prospects of this bad boy. This film will bomb at theaters starting November 30.
